He appreciated the work of the relic site’s staff in preserving valuable documents and artefacts about President Ho Chi Minh’s life and revolutionary career, and popularizing the President’s thought and teachings.
President Ho Chi Minh led the Vietnamese nation to success in the struggle for national independence.
On September 2, 1945, he read the Declaration of Independence, declaring to the world the foundation of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, now the Socialist Republic of Vietnam.
Before passing away on September 2, 1969, Ho Chi Minh spent four years from May 1965 to May 1969 to write his testament, which has become a guideline for Vietnam’s revolution and development during the past half century.
Many activities, including a national ceremony, have been held across the country this year to mark 50-year implementation of the late President’s testament.
